At some point in our lives, we all feel overwhelmed, overburdened, and sometimes even stuck. It can seem like stress is preventing us from living the life we want, and our thoughts, feelings, or habits are holding us back. Whether you are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, parenting difficulties, relationship conflicts, work-home balance, or health issues, I can help you find your way through a difficult period. You can live more fully by gaining new perspective, clarifying your values, effectively managing stress, and taking action toward your goals. I help people build better and richer lives.
Shoreline TMS offers Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: an FDA-approved, non-invasive outpatient medical procedure for patients suffering from medication-resistant depression. TMS works by delivering short, powerful bursts of magnetic energy to the area of the brain where mood is regulated. Rapid pulses work to stimulate the nerve cells that are not firing at full capacity in the depressed brain. There are minimal side effects associated with TMS. A patient may be a good candidate for TMS if they are still suffering from depression despite having tried multiple medications.
I have helped clients, who have been willing to establish a trusting relationship, over time and explore current problems or growth potential through examination of key past and present relationships. If you can examine feelings, take responsibility for your part of conflicts and look for ways to expand give and take with others, you will do well in therapy with me. My recent work with brain behavior therapies can help you resolve difficult and long standing sources of anxiety and depression.
Life happens! We are all on our own unique journey, and sometimes we struggle along the way. The struggle may come in the form of anxiety, depression, grief/loss or distress, and it may be the result of significant changes in your life. Is this stress impacting your health, your relationships, your job, or the overall quality of your life? You don't have to go through this alone. If you are experiencing any of these struggles, I may be able to offer you the help you need, in a kind, caring and collaborative process.
It can feel overwhelming to find a therapist. These are particularly stressful times and you don't have to navigate it alone. We can all grow from the pain and challenges we face. Together we will work on identifying your goals and improving your quality of life. Therapy will be tailored to you. I look forward to being a part of your journey.
Currently my work is focussed on helping clients use the unique opportunity of psychotherapy to explore and understand feelings, thoughts and behaviors that contribute to some difficulties they might be having. Goals can be to learn about oneself, and find self acceptance, provide emotional relief, make and sustain satisfying relationships and make good choices going forward. Choosing to begin psychotherapy is an important decision and it is essential to find a good match between client and therapist so I encourage people to make an initial appointment to see whether we should take this journey together.

Depression, anxiety, panic and poor self-esteem can have a profound effect on our day to day lives. Reaching out to someone new can be difficult even when we feel our best.

I have been in private practice for 30 years in the capacity of family therapist and clinical director at two residential facilities. I do not believe in long term therapy, and on occasion, clients will come back for a "tune-up." I am direct, I will give you feedback, (not tell you what to do) and be very supportive at the same time. Family therapists, believe that behaviors get passed down from generation to generation. We would explore your "family of origin" and sort out what behaviors are working for you and what needs to change. If YOU do the work, You WILL get better!
I adjust to my clients, meeting them where they are when they begin while pushing them forward and onto accomplishing their goals. I balance tenderness with truth and believe strongly that the therapeutic relationship is a key factor in success.

In a safe and compassionate space, I work with children, adolescents, adults, parents, & families in identifying challenges, finding effective ways of coping, & moving toward reaching specific goals. Learning to love yourself & practicing these skills will lead to a more meaningful life & more fulfilling relationships.

My name is Courtney Pope, LCSW. I specialize in treating substance abuse and mental health issues in both adolescents and adults. In addition to these issues I have experience with various issues that can occur across the lifespan. I utilize a strengths based approach as well as Cognitive behavioral therapy. My therapeutic approach is more direct but tailored to a clients needs. I’m ready to help you heal!
Our ability to live a more satisfying life is predicated on our capacity for self-awareness and subsequently self-management. By examining our patterned behavior and underlying thinking we have an opportunity to understand the dynamics of our distress. This understanding, derived from insight-oriented therapy, coupled with cognitive behavioral based techniques, can help us transition to living a better life. I help facilitate the process of introspection and awareness with the goal to build and foster skills to better manage emotional and psychological reactions.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MPS, ATR-BC, LPC, CLAT
I work with people of all ages to help them manage anxiety, depression, relational issues, trauma, and much more. I work with the individual to more clearly define what brings them to therapy as well as work out strategies to manage the thoughts and/or behaviors that are stopping the person from living to their potential. Then together we make a plan on how to reach your goals.
Seeking support can be a difficult decision and process! I am a compassionate and responsive counselor who listens, but also provides clients with effective tools and strategies to manage life’s difficult situations. I see each client as unique and having different needs, therefore my work is mostly grounded in a person centered approach. By also incorporating cognitive behavioral and solution focused approaches, I help clients meet their personal goals.
Making an informed choice in selection of your therapist is your first step in achieving your goals. In the field for 25+ years, I am licensed both as a Clinical Social Worker and a Drug and Alcohol Counselor with post-graduate training in Marriage and Family Therapy. As a Substance Abuse Counselor, I am flexible and work with persons seeking abstinence as well as those working toward harm reduction. Certified as a School Social Worker to work with children with special needs, I can assist in navigating the Educational System and can collaborate with family and school around issues impacting performance or socialization with peer.
I believe that we all need support, however at times we may need a different type of support than what those close to us can and/or are able to provide. Reaching out and asking for help takes a significant amount of strength and courage, something I not only recognize, but respect in all aspects of my practice. Whether you are going through a difficult life experience or are dealing with something that is more long-standing and chronic, I am committed to working with you to reach your personal goals.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Guilford are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.
Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Guilford then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.
Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Guilford, or Child Psychologists in Guilford.
Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Guilford psychologists specializing in EMDR.
What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Guilford specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
